    Cold Steel Recon 1 Tactical Folding Knife



    Let’s talk about the Cold Steel Recon 1 tactical folding knife. I personally believe that this is one of the sharpest knives that you’re going to get straight from the factory. Cold Steel has a knack for producing a razor sharp edge right.You’ll find this blade will cut almost anything and is very slow to dull. This is also one of the most durable knives that I’ve ever dealt with.

    The blade is AUS 8A stainless steel.

    The handles are G-10 laminate scales that are reinforced by heat treated steel liners and five locking bolts. You will find these handles to be very durable. You’re not going to destroy these grips with out an all out intentional effort. This knife is perfect for hard use in whatever field you’re in whether it is military or law enforcement.

    The blade has been given a Teflon finish that is highly scratch resistant and is very unlikely to rust. The blade produces little glare which is perfect for tactical operations and the Teflon coating acts as a decent lubricant making cutting a bit easier.

    The pocket clip on the Recon 1 is small and discreet but is extra long. The length will prevent this knife from being knocked loose. The clip is not a nuisance to the palm while using the knife as it is flat and seemingly not present when in use. The clip is also ambidextrous.

    This is a fine all around knife. It is perfect for the hard core user or the recreational user. You pull one of these out to use in a military operation or just to trim your fingernails, you will be satisfied.

    Specifications:

    • Weight: 5.6 oz.
    • Blade Thick: 9/64" (3.5mm)
    • Blade Length: 4"
    • Handle: 5 1/3" long. G-10
    • Steel: AUS 8A Stainless
    • Overall Length: 9 1/3" Black Teflon¨ Finish
    • Sheath: Ultra Lock with Ambidextrous Stainless Pocket Clip

    Hope ya'll enjoyed my review.

    Take care,
    Cole

    I've got one with the clip point blade. Very good knife, I carry it at work during the week.

    I like the blade lock location and the one thing I really like is that you can adjust the blade tension... it feels like there's a nylon lock nut on it or something so you can loosen it up and not worry about loosing anything.
    For me the blade flips out with a small flick of the wrist!
